The admission process into Miracle is deeply flawed. Anyone who has a certain wristband gets in, period. No fingerprint matches? No DNA? No attempts at all to match the person flashing the wristband to the banded person? No. See more »

Don't let these naysayers persuade you
6 July 2014 | by gorman2462See all my reviews

I guess everyone on this site is an academy award winner. The writing is not terrible, and the story line is not cliché'd. There is a ton of potential with this series and I am excited to see what comes next. The characters are compelling, there is a lot of mystery surrounding what has happened and what is happening in the future. Weird groups start to form and prophets arise as people are seeking answers as to why 140 million people just disappear.

As for all the trolls bashing this series, I'd imagine they would say Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad are cliché'd as well. I felt compelled to defend this series and that's the only reason I am writing this review. Watch it, judge for yourself, not by what some self righteous wanna be writer has to say about it.
